    According to the United Nations Refugee Agency, there are 68.5 million displaced people worldwide, and 85% of them are in developing countries. The country that has accepted the most refugees?

    Iran, the country that we have an arms treaty with, at least temporarily.

    The most ironic handling of the refugees is the approach just instituted by Australia, which originally was a prison colony for England. The country has been sending refugees to Nauru and Papa New Guinea, but now plans to send them to Christmas Island, even though the island may not have the necessary medical facilities.
